Through the help of many experienced anglers and Tuna Champions Facebook page, fisho’s are learning how important it is to dispatch and store bluefin, yellowfin and other tuna in the correct manner to guarantee the best eating quality. This kit made locally in Melbourne by Hookem provides you all the necessary items to dispatch and correctly bleed tuna to ensure it tastes its best. Tuna Champions, which is headed up by Dr Shaun Tracey from Tasmania (the ultimate scientist in Tuna movements and fishing sustainability) provides the following process to dispatch:
- Brain Spike
- Nick the femoral artery just behind the side fin on both sides of the fish
- Core brain spike area
- Stem line the backbone to end all electrical impulses
- Gill and gut
- Place on very cold salt water ice slurry immediately.
